In the northeast corner of Wyoming, among the gentle rolling hills, protrudes a remarkable monolith known as Devils Tower.
It became the first National Monument in the United States in 1906.
This image is a gem I missed when I processed the photos I made at Devils Tower last year. When I look at the selection of images from this location I think this one is my favourite! How did I miss it? Especially since I got up at 4:30am to be here for sunrise.
Devils Tower is an extraordinary sight to see. The tower itself is made up of hundreds of columns and, at over 1200 feet tall, it’s a popular place for rock climbers. The climb usually takes between 4-6 hours but I read about one fellow who managed to climb up there in 18 minutes! The top of the tower is the size of a football field.
I haven’t been making very many new images since I was working on my new eBook. Now that it’s out I’m going back over the images I made last year to see what other gems I can find before we head south again for the winter.
It’s hard to believe I only have 3 weeks left in BC before we hit the road again.
